A Review of- Chemo-Therapist: How Cancer Cured A Marriage by Mary Potter Kenyon

Chemo-Therapist: How Cancer Cured A Marriage
By: Mary Potter Kenyon
Genre: Memoir/Caregiving
224 pages
Publisher: Familius, 2014

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

When Mary's husband of 27 years is diagnosed with cancer it puts an added strain on an already troubled marriage. But after visiting her husband post surgery she finds herself falling in love with him again. A horrible disease ended up making their marriage stronger.

I found this to be a brutally honest memoir that was poignant and uplifting. It also provided useful information on caregiving and explaining a loved one's sickness to young children. I recommend it.
